Rhode Island College Campus Trees
In this year of celebration and reflection let us recognize and enjoy the impressive collection of trees that shape our campus landscape. The sampling on the cover includes the white oak (Quercus alba)
at the Mt. Pleasant entrance adopted as our Sesquicentennial symbol, a Hinoki falsecypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa) in front of Building 8 on the East Campus, two Higan cherries (Prunus subhirtella var. autumnalis) beside Adams Library, and a pink flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) in the Henry Barnard
School playground. The diversity of trees contributes to making our campus a truly special place, and their presence will surely continue to comfort and inspire the Rhode Island College community for the next 150 years.
